    Shoesmith

    Captain Kong e.mailed these Shoesmith study's to me yesterday he took whilst staying aboard the RMS Queen Mary in Longbeach, California. He found them in one of the state rooms aboard the Mary and they were painted by Kenneth D Shoesmith in the 1930's when he was commissioned by Cunard, they have been hanging in the Mary for these past 70 years (excepting for the period of World War 2). Brian, knew that I was posting pictures by Shoesmith and thought that I would like to add them to my collection. I was very pleased to do so and, indeed I was pleased to think that these pictures have given so much pleasure to the tens of thousands of people over the past half century and I like to think that they will give pleasure to all of those who will follow us in the future. I hope you like them too.
    After Brian sent me the pictures I discovered the above photo of the artist himself putting the finishing touches to the picture of the "Madonna of the Atlantic"

    This portrait is of the Booth Liner ANSELM,the second ship in the fleet to bear that name. She is shown making her way up the Amazon on the 1000 mile journey to Manaus. She was built by Workman ,Clark &Co. in Belfast in 1905. ANSELM served with the Booth Line until 1922 ,when she was sold to owners in Argentina ,who renamed her Commodoro Rivadavia. She was eventually broken up in 1959.

    This study was the work of a Brazilian artist D.W.E.Gutman ,allof whose knowwn paintings are portraits of Booth Line ships.

    This little coaster was built in Middlesborough in 1911 for the Meteor Steamship Co. of that port; she was a very fortunate little vessel and she survived two world wars ,as well as four different Owners. She was called the Eskwood for her first owners.She was renamed Kilworth in 1946 after serving theGrand Union Shipping of London She underwent two more changes of ownership and two more renamingsbeforefinally,as late as 1956,being sold as Holdernoll to be broken up at Gateshead.

    This was painted by a Danish artist H.Hangen who,presumablyhad some association with her,there are no other works known by this artist.
